Steffeny Wood is the children’s teacher for both the 3’s class and 4’s class. She has been working with children since her first teaching internship in 1993. She has a degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Language Arts. Her experience with preschoolers began when setting up play groups for her own children. Steffeny was an involved Issaquah Coop parent with her own two boys and daughter, occasionally filling in as the substitute teacher.
A former 2nd and 3rd grade teacher, Steffeny has also taught at a Bellevue College Toddler class and a Pre-K 4 and 5 year-old class. We are excited to have Steffeny returning to ICP this year as our children’s teacher.
Steffeny and her family are Issaquah residents and enjoy outdoor activities like camping, waterskiing and snow skiing. She volunteers in her children’s classes and enjoys attending their sports activities.
“I love the excitement and wonder children possess. I enjoy working in a career that allows me to interact with children on a regular basis, contributing to and observing their growth and development. I enjoy providing projects for the students that bring out their creativity and imagination. I am looking forward to working with both the children and their parents in the classroom.”
Anuja Singh is the children’s teacher for the Toddler (2’s) class. She and her family are residents of Sammamish. They moved to the United States about four years ago. Anuja is a software engineer by education and a teacher by heart. Watching her children grow, she found her passion in nurturing children. Anuja has worked with children for over two years and she especially loves helping toddlers explore, play, socialize and learn new skills.
Anuja enjoys reading, going on walks with her two boys and spending time with friends and family.
“The creativity and imagination that flows uniquely from each child is a warm experience. Seeing the excitement and curiosity on little faces is refreshing and I look forward to meeting new families and making great memories!”
